    Lots of love and lots of hate for them. I purchased 20K of the small rifle mag. They have all be used. If they were still available I would buy more. Most of the hate is based on not understanding the differences between them and US. Most...

    I know nothing of their M1 Carbines. I have seen some of their work on M1 Garands and M1A's. They did a good job with those.

    I would recommend finding a buddy that has one and use it before you purchase. Some people love these presses and some people not so much. I have two. Got my first in the early 80's. I am strongly in the "not so much" camp. I have a bunch of...
